Single Review: “Just A Dream” by Carrie Underwood
When you’re hot, you’re hot. Carrie Underwood has had everything up to this point that is needed to define an artist, attitude, stamina, beauty and grace, a great voice, exposure, and feeling behind every word of her endless #1 streak of hits. What she needed to complete her star powered perfection is a powerful, tear-jerking and sentimental song that is so strong yet so delicate it is borderline perfection. That is this song.
“Just A Dream” may seem like a strange song at first, but given a few listens and some attentiveness it is revealed that this very powerful balled tells the story of a woman who believes she is heading to her wedding with her lover who has been at war only to find she was actually going to his funeral. As you can imagine, the scene unravels for the character like a bad dream, to put it better a real nightmare. Carrie supports the lyrics with her most powerful vocal performance to date, not only showing that she is the entire package once and for all, but showing just how much pain, confusion and suffering is being felt by the woman in the song.
SO to put it simply Carrie Underwood has made a huge step into unquestionable country music superstardom with this one. No doubt she will have another very deserving #1 with this one.
